dose-ceve - parse package metadata
dose-ceve [-h] [-v] [-e pkgspec] [-c pkgspec] [-r pkgspec] [--depth=n] [-t format] [-o filename] input-spec
Dose-ceve is a generalized metadata parser. It reads package specifications, extracts package metadata from them, performs some manipulations, and outputs the package metadata in one of several formats.
-h This option displays the help message. Can also be specified as --help. -v Be verbose. This option can be repeated for more verbosity. -e pkgspec (Option Not Implemented Yet) Extract the transitive closure of packages connected (by conflict or dependency) to any of the packages that satisfy pkgspec. Such a package specification is a list of packages (separated by a semicolon), where each package is specified as follows: (name,version). This option can also be specified as --extract=pkgspec. -c pkgspec Similar to the -c option, but only uses the dependency relation to make the transitive closure. This option can also be specified as --cone=pkgspec. -r pkgspec Similar to the -e and -c options, but uses the reverse dependency relation to make the transitive closure. This option can also be specified as --rcone=pkgspec. --depth=n In combination with the -e, -c or -r options, this specifies the maximum depth for the transitive closure. =item -t format Specifies the output format to use. Possible values are dot for a graph output in Dot/GraphViz format, cnf for an output in CNF format, dimacs for an output in the DIMACS format for CNF formulae, and cudf for a pretty-print output in an RFC 822-like format. This option can also be specified as --outtype=format. -o filename Instead of stdout, send output to the file filename. This option can also be specified as --outfile=filename. input-spec This is a URL specifying both the input format and the file to get the input from. Possible schemes are: cudf for cudf files deb for Debian package files (possibly compressed with gzip(1) or bzip2(1), depending on compile-time options for dose3) debstdin for Debian package files read from standard input eclipse for Eclipse (p2) package files pgsql for PostgreSQL databasess sqlite for sqlite databases hdlist for RPM hdlists synth for urpmi synthesis hdlists Some examples of URLs: deb://Packages.gz (the Debian file packages.gz in the current directory) cudf:///home/examples/cudf/test.cudf (the CUDF file /home/examples/cudf/test.cudf) psql://firstname.lastname@example.org:723/packages (the database packages on host db.mancoosi.org on port 723, accessed as user user) 2013-12-23 CEVE(1)
